POTD 24th July 2018

A GLOWING TREASURE

A glowing treasure of her beauty’s might,
attractive smiles of pretense to beguile
the fervid passion cast in darkest light
to please the eager touch of lust so vile.
A brittle façade hiding secret scars
with fairness shadowed by disgraceful needs,
regrets of past her fervent brilliance mars,
her semblance pacified by evil deeds.				
Mischance to shameful acts of virgin sin,
her heart’s appeal replaced by frozen zeal
to hide aside an empty love within,
her morbid secrets never to reveal.
A soul a sacred labyrinth of pain
her life in tatters with her future slain.

TJ, another poignant sonnet replete with beauty and sorrow. I particularly appreciate the ending couplet with the poet's sympathetic eye towards a tragic figure. Exquisite, my friend ~ John

For sure, few place all to be seen on the surface, for fear of being hurt or for not having reconciled deep conflict within. They show what they can. Excellent write, Teppo!

Hi Teppo, I have to agree with Anisha, each Sonnet you do write is a masterpiece in poetry. You write with such strong emotion, always painting an awesome canvas. I am always touched when reading your work. Your work always makes me feel. You express your emotions with such skill Teppo. An excellent write again. Have a wonderful end to your Saturday.

Your great Sonnet is the epitome of Beauty enfolding pain and sadness of the soul "hiding secret scars".. Amazing depiction of the complexities of the human soul far from being judgemental or preaching! You are a master of art painting and presenting your work graciously. I enjoyed reading your beauty Teppo! A master of Sonnet. A FAV. Be blessed.
